Young Creative Awards 2020

For 9 years now, the Deauville Green Awards have been showcasing hundreds of institutional films, spots and documentaries in order to raise awareness of environmental and societal issues.

The Deauville Green Awards are innovating this year with this new competition of the Young Creative Awards.

The festival team is convinced that films are powerful tools for mobilization, and this year wants to honor the young filmmakers and videographers who create them.

This free competition aims to reward the best productions of this new generation, to help them see their work as a vector of change and thus encourage them to widely share and resonate their ecological message.


The Competition Prizes

The festival team will reward the best films of the competition with two prizes:

- the Jury Young Creative Awards, rewarding the best production according to the following criteria: originality of the production, quality of the technical production (image, editing, sound), effectiveness of the message to encourage the audience to take concrete action on environmental issues.

- and the Public Young Creative Awards, voted as its name indicates by the public on social networks. The votes will be symbolized by the reactions "like" and "sharing" and will also take into account the numbers of views since the start of the competition. The film posted with the most "views", "likes" and "sharing" combined will win the Public Prize of the competition.


This first edition of the Young Creative Awards comes in the midst of a global health crisis, which is, in our view, not meaningless. It's time to give a voice to the young generations who are thinking about the world afterwards and encourage them.

Anyone under the age of 30, having produced a film, after January 1st, 2018, on the ecological stakes of our world.
